  • Yup, she doesn't have as much space to move around now. it doesnt mean labor is absolutely immenint though. You could still have some time.

  • I've heard that movement slows down as the baby gets bigger- not as much room to move.

  • They do slow down because they've gotten bigger and are running out of room to move! If you don't feel any movement though, for like an hour or two, then be sure to call the doctor. They should've told you this.

  • IF THE MOVEMENTS SLOWED DOWN DONT PANIC IT JUST MEAN SHE'S GROWING AND PROBABLY RUNNING OUT OF ROOM TO MOVE AROUND, CONGRATS ON YOUR BABY GIRL

  • She is just having a quite time, rub your tummy and talk to her out loud she can hear you. Tell her stories, tell her about how wonderful it is going to be when she pops out. Sing to her, play music, dance, love your life make her happy. She will be giggling when she gets here.
